Three Businesses Heading Into Red Cap Patisserie Spot

Where once stood a bakery will now stand vendors selling Filipino food, Italian food, and coffee.




Red Cap Patisserie was one of my favorite bakeries in town.  Unfortunately, it hasn’t survived. The location at 719 N. Meadow instead is turning into Market on Meadow.

We are SO EXCITED to finally announce our small business collaboration, Market on Meadow.

We are founded by 3 local RVA market vendors who create their products from the ground up:

  • Polpetti, with the most delicious Italian goods & creators of the amazing Polpetti Pockets.
  • Auntie Ning’s, a Filipino-owned business spearheading quality Filipino food into the RVA scene with their lumpia, pancit, lechon, empanadas, and much more.
  • Column 15, a Black & Filipino, women-owned coffee roastery that specializes in nitro cold brew and adds those really refreshing coffee ice spheres into your drink.

Give us a like or follow, and be among the first to be updated on our upcoming RVA Brick & Mortar, located in The Fan area of Richmond, 719 N Meadow Street, opening July 2021.


Richmond has additional information.

Filipino food truck Auntie Ning’s, coffee shop Column 15 and Polpetti Catering, which sells Italian fare, are going in together to launch Market on Meadow in the former Red Cap Patisserie at 719 N. Meadow St.

Combining retail sales, a shared kitchen and a sit-down dining area, the market also will feature a commissary kitchen program for other users.

Each of the three tenants will continue to operate as an independent brand. Each concept will have a separate menu and retail offerings, and will each facilitate its operations at the market with its own staff, Column 15 co-owner Victoria Goldsby said.
